We are excited to announce that WE HAVE MOVED into our new and renovated spaces!

With your help, we have created a functional, dignified, and comforting place to serve the community.

    This critical expansion to our space has enabled JFCS to:

  • Enlarge the Kosher Food Pantry
  • Expand our counseling program
  • Provide additional resources for our senior and teen programs
  • Better ensure the confidentiality and dignity of our clients

Through our Fund the Future Campaign, we have been working to raise the funds needed to renovate our new and old space and provide the technology infrastructure that is necessary to serve our community at the highest level.
